"Very short book -- if you are planning a trip to NYC, this book takes you from Times Square, across Broadway, to Bryant Park, to Central Park, to the Empire State Building, to the Statue of Liberty, and also throws in the Planetarium and the Museum of Natural History. Great follow-on to "The Cricket In Times Square" -- maybe even better than that book, from a New York City perspective."
"fictional account combined with the author's personal experiences. Wonderful illustrations. Sera, the main character coming to America, is fleeing the massacres in Turkey which killed her mother. Emphasizes the killings and pogroms that accompanied the rise to power of the Communists in Europe. The hope of America. For older kids."
